Coolant tank swap out 10 minutes!


Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I just thought i would comment on how fast it took to swap out my coolant tank. First you must gain access to your engine from above. Then remove all the linings from the trunk. After this it's cake! You can reach the clamp that holds the 3" rubber hose from above. Lifting your car is definitely not required. I lifted mine only becuase other instructions that i have read recommended doing so, but after trying to find the correct hose that way---FORGET IT!

Easy

I give all this credit to ToolPants for mentioning/figuring out the top route.

Hi Respirologyrc,

I just replaced my coolant tank but I don't see how you could have done it without lifting up the car because one of the connector on the tank is clamped from underneath the car. I don't see how you could have removed this clamp from inside the trunk. I'm just curious, but can you please explain how you were able to do this.

Thanks.

Sactown:

I don't know if this is how Respirologyrc did it, but there is a way to reach the clamps from inside the trunk. I used this method when I had to replace my coolant tank (MY 97 Boxster).

If you pull back the carpeting in the rear trunk, on the firewall behind the engine, you will see a large rubber plug (about 5 inches in diameter), down near the base of the coolant tank and to the left of it (there is a bundle of wires running through the plug). If you pull that plug backwards and off the hole in the firewall, you can see the clamps and reach your hand and/or long needlenose or hose clamp pliers through there to access some of the clamps. A little silicone around the perimeter of that plug helps to squeeze it back in place. It does give you additional access and a good view of what has to be done in there.

Regards, Maurice.
